Jos Barlow’s research examines biodiversity responses to environmental change in tropical ecosystems. It aims to understand how human-dominated tropical forest landscapes can be managed to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services, while maintaining the livelihoods of rural peoples. He has worked on a wide range of taxa, and has studied ecological issues in many different management systems, including selectively logged native forests, agroforests, fast-growing timber plantations, slash-and-burn, cattle ranching and mechanised agriculture.
